    Now that is what I call an accomplishment! I might be backtracking for the rest of my life. But I will never be finished because I refuse to watch Salo.

  2. I avoided Saló and Funny Games for as long as I could, but finally dared to see them.

    I see it’s all 80s and 90s movies. Was that on purpose? Congrats on getting near the end.

    • Thank you!

      Not much is ever on purpose in my life 😉

      The backtracking consists mainly of movies I had already seen before my 1001 days. Plus an additional backlog, since I didn’t begin blogging until a while after I started this project.

      So when there were finally no more »new« movies to watch, I started writing about the »old« ones by the decade, jumping back and forth through time a little. For some reason the 80s and 90s became the last remaining decades.
